HOW IT WORKS
IllumiCare is a separate application which hovers on top of the EMR/CPOE. It piggybacks onto existing sign-on and clinician authorization methods. When the physician navigates to a patient specific screen on the EMR/CPOE, the IllumiCare Smart Ribbon appears at the top of the screen, showing information about the same patient being viewed in the EMR/CPOE.
If the physician does not interact with IllumiCare, the ribbon automatically fades away after several seconds so as not to interfere with the CPOE process. It can be recalled at any time. IllumiCare combines clinical data, financial data and patent-pending patient safety metrics into a “decision transparency” tool at the point of care. It does not interact with or directly access the EMR/CPOE. Clinical data is obtained via existing HL7 feeds. Financial and other data come from a combination of internal and third-party sources.
